LINCOLN, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/12 -- Ameritas Investment Corp. (AIC), which offers a wide range of investment products and services, announced today an initiative to unlock the power of social media for its registered representatives. Working with Socialware, the leader in social media compliance and engagement, AIC advisors will soon be able to confidently and effectively build valuable relationships and exchange information via social networks, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, while remaining compliant with industry regulations.
"Particularly in the financial services industry, building valuable and trusted relationships with clients is critical to providing exceptional service. Social networks are where many relationships are developed today," said Chad Bockius, CEO of Socialware. "AIC has made the smart decision to proactively support its advisors and ensure social media initiatives are successful for its advisors and have a positive impact on the company."
As consumers turn to social networks to discuss topics they have interest in, investment firms are seeking ways to leverage channels to continue the important relationship building that was traditionally conducted offline. AIC, working with Socialware, is providing social engagement support to all of its advisors.
"At AIC, our top priority is to provide advisors with the tools for success. An internal survey indicated the vast majority of our advisors were eager to use sites like LinkedIn and Facebook to build business," said Salene Hitchcock-Gear, president and chief executive officer of Ameritas Investment Corp. "Socialware's partnerships in the industry and depth of experience in the complexities of both the financial services industry and social networks make them the ideal experts to lead the way."
